Just my $.02 -
vtund rocks, I learned about it when
I took on a side job doing linux/vpn
admin for a medium size company.
vtund connects their branch offices
to their main office - it encrypts and
compresses traffic between the vpn
boxes at each end, which in our case
are iptables firewall boxes.
I am impressed with it - as mentioned
it's user space and works with linux,
bsd or solaris....

I was wondering whether the socket architecture could be modified in order
to support PPP connections over a generic socket (of type SOCK_DGRAM or
SOCK_SEQPACKET), by mapping each PPP packet to a socket packet. This idea
is not completely new: somebody raised is in the past, see for example
vtun already provides this capability in user space.
ppp(8) on *BSD also provides this capability in user space as well.
As memory serves PPPoE on Linux is partially implemented in userspace
as is, so a partial user space solution for PPPoUDP shouldn't be that
